Shoojit Sircar Is A Fan Of Anubhav Sinha’s Mulk
Director cum producer Anubhav Sinha makes it a point to narrate all his films to his industry director and writer friends for their opinions before he starts shooting and casting for a film. The laundry list includes Gaurav Solanki, Sudhir Mishra, Subhash Kapoor, Mustaq Sheikh and Vishal Bharadwaj
However for Mulk, Sinha got a special reading session done for Piku and Vicky Donor director, Shoojit Sircar who within 10 minutes of hearing the script gave Sinha his nod of approval.
Anubhav Sinha states, “Shoojit actually said this was one of his favourite films of mine. He loved the narrative so much that he requested me not to reconsider the film”
Presented by Kamal Mukut and Soham Rockstar Entertainment, a Benaras Media Works production, the film is produced by Deepak Mukut and Anubhav Sinha and directed by Anubhav Sinha. The film features Rishi Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Neena Gupta, Rajat Kapoor, Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra, Ashutosh Rana, Prachee Shah Paandya, Vartika Singh, Ashrut Jain, Indraneil Sengupta.
The first set of posters that were revealed recently showcase Taapsee Pannu essaying the role of a defense lawyer named Aarti Mohammed in the film and Rishi Kapoor essaying the role of the accused named Murad Ali Mohammed in the film. Prateik Babbar essays the misguided youth – Shahid Mohammed, Ashutosh Rana the public prosector- Santosh Anand while Rajat Kapoor the investigating officer – Danish Javed. The teaser of the film opened with a voice declaring that Rishi Kapoor is a traitor even as he defends himself by stating he is not. A quick series of shots showed his arrest, commotion in public and his family’s ordeal. The teaser ended with a short speech by Taapsee Pannu before the bench, where she declares that a nation is not divided by the lines on a map but by colour, language, religion and caste.
